i don't use Suse, TDE 3.5.xx  has KDE naming conventions, so it might be 
hard to tell. LO  from the vendor sites does not know about the 
location of TDE in /opt.I am guesing. 

 LO has KDE integration package and a Gnome integration package, are 
they installed or uninstall and test.


I use the "Libreoficce Dialogs"
